Course overview

Come and cultivate peace, strength and serenity in this Qigong taster series with Elle from Harmony Within.

Whether you struggle with anxiety and stress or just want a new way to calm a busy mind, qigong could be just what you’re looking for.

Qigong, (pronounced chee-gung) offers a tool for inner calm amidst life's chaos, creating mental clarity and gentle physical strength. No prior experience is necessary to join, simply a curiosity to begin

In our sessions, you'll be guided through gentle standing movements, synchronised breath, and moments of serene comfortable stillness. This course offers you four sessions, one each Monday for you to experience how qigong might be able to support you.

You don’t need any special equipment. Simply yourself, comfortable clothing and access to Zoom.

This class is suitable for all ages and abilities and can be done seated for a range of mobility needs. You are welcome to join this course if you want more ways to easily and enjoyably improve your physical and mental wellness with a supportive group.

This course has 4 online sessions of 1 hour 15 minutes and is part of the Thriving in Somerset Project.

If you want to meet Elle before the course starts you can find her on Facebook and Instagram @harmonywithinorg
